ODTUG Webinar: “Oracle ADF Immersion: How an Oracle Forms Developer Immersed Himself in the Oracle ADF World”

On Oracle Open World we had the chance to present our “Oracle ADF Immersion” track thanks to the ADF EMG.
In case you couldn’t attend OOW or missed the session, you’ve got another chance: on january 10, 2013 we will present it as an ODTUG Webinar.

We will show you how you can start with ADF, coming from an Oracle Forms(or non-java) background.
You can register for the webinar here.

If you like to join the ADF EMG, don’t hesitate, it’s a free ADF usergroup!

All kind of questions start to arise:

  • Is it almost finished, should I wait just a few more minutes?
  • Is it trapped in an infinitive loop? Or are my queries running slow?
  • Can I safely kill it? Or did it already commit some changes and should I reverse them?
  • Which job should I kill, is this mine?
